  • Yazd is a beautiful city, you can easily stroll around there. Awesome mosks lighted in the evening. Visit also that typical Yazd sport in the basement, near the square.  more »
  • One of the best old cities in Iran to wander round. great market, lovely restaurants and bars selling delicious soft drinks  more »
  • A city full of charm, other than the call of duty. Just wander and get lost, run at historic sites. One of the places where I would return, for the magic that gave me and for the kindness of its inhabitants.
